Maddie Di Muccio’s defamation action against Regional Councillor John Taylor will be held in the Small Claims Court at Newmarket at 10am on Friday 28 October 2016.
I had hoped the increasingly fragile Di Muccio, a former Newmarket councillor, would put the past behind her. But no. The circus act continues even though there is no prospect whatsoever that Di Muccio will get the scalp she treasures above all others.
It is not going to work out that way.
She has already lost an action for alleged discrimination against her by the Town of Newmarket.
In the action against Taylor, Di Muccio amended her original claim and now alleges, in addition to defamation, he committed “misfeasance and malfeasance” in public office. She says he was responsible for intentionally inflicting mental suffering on her. She says he continues to defame her character “even as a private citizen”. She wants her pound of flesh from Taylor in the shape of $5,000 in damages to compensate for her hurt feelings
Di Muccio is consumed by bitterness, unwilling and unable to move on, using surrogates to malign Taylor for every imagined injustice in Newmarket.
I look on from afar and it is pitiful to watch.
